Our restaurant is a family owned business open all year round for lunch and dinner. Our business is mainly centered around lunch however we are more than happy to serve dinner to any customers that feel like coming to enjoy truly home sri lankan cooking. All we ask is for people to phone us in advance and let us know that they are coming so that we can start preparing food.
